What can only you do at home?

Yesterday, Jeffrey was promoting his new book. The paperwork of life is challenging to keep up with. As CEO of You, Inc, every challenge is yours to overcome.

What do you need at home that only you can do?

  • Mindset
  • Enthusiasm
  • Structure
  • Processes
  • Accountability/Ownership
  • Say yes
  • Say no
  • Choices
  • Be an example, not a warning

The paperwork of life piles up quickly and once we get behind, it is exponentially more challenging to thrive versus survive.

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Make It Simple

USP aka unique selling proposition

Simplicity wisdom
From Facebook last night.

 

USP is also known as “unique selling proposition”.

It’s something that compellingly separates you and your business from the others who are vying for your customer base.

Until recently, i never gave this serious thought even though i’ve always understood the concept theory. Working for 30 years inside a big Company like Disney, there’s a well-oiled corporate marketing team that has one job – to market Disney’s USP.

And they do it brilliantly.

The sudden invitation two days ago to be part of a large, public, Canadian conference (in 14 days) had me scrambling to polish up some marketing sound bites.

And it caused deep introspection on my own unique selling proposition.

How did i become Disney Institute’s highest rated, most requested speaker? How/why was i selected not once, but twice, to receive both of the Walt Disney Lifetime Achievement Awards?

It had a lot to do with my life’s work – 30 years inside Disney – and honing the most complex and sophisticated business secrets.

It also had a lot to do with a passion for keeping things simple (and prioritized), without which, nothing great happens.

Now all i have to do is say all of that in 200 characters, including spaces and periods.

Dear Son, In Trying To Leave A Trail For You, A Unique Unplanned Opportunity Emerged

The 5th blog is HQ - the paperwork of life.

Dear Son, the hidden insight here is the harder you work, the luckier you get. When I set out to write (critical) work life balance lessons for you in the form of blogging, a unique, unplanned opportunity emerged.

Five A Day – Part Three

“Why did you create five blogs in the first place, knowing that you’d never be writing in all five everyday anyway?”

Two logical reasons:

  1. My model for balance had four parts, not two
  2. I’d link each of them to all the others, for SEO

Mid Life Celebration is about balancing life’s big choices, and there are four:

  1. Mind
  2. Body
  3. Spirit
  4. Money

This fifth blog, jeffnoel.com, was created because I thought there should be an “office” or “headquarters”, so to speak – one that didn’t have a theme and wasn’t part of the model.

And when the previous jeffnoel.com didn’t renew after having that domain, www.jeffnoel.com for seven years, it was a natural choice to pick my given name as a dot com.

That’s it.  That’s how it happened.  And now, I can’t stop myself.

In a sea of blogs that drone on about whatever, I’m carving out a space among the few who have five-a-day, droning on about whatever.

“Be yourself.  Everyone else is taken.”Life Is Good slogan

I used to look for sea shells on Sanibel Island, Florida.  You know the ones – the perfect shape and color.  The ones that looked like they came from the sea shell store.

Not any more.

Now, I look for ones that are unique and special – broken and beautiful.

Just like us humans.

Broken and beautiful.

Like Tiger Woods.

Like me.

Like you.
